  • Joseph Randle has answered a very important question. That is, is it he or Darren McFadden that deserves featured back status for the Cowboys? It was Randle on Sunday against Atlanta. And based on his performance, it will continue to be. He visited the end zone three times, rushing for 87 yards on just 14 carries in the process for a 7.2 per-carry average. Randle appeared destined for a huge game when he raced 37 yards for a touchdown a minute into the game, then added a 1-yard score midway through the first quarter. He scored again from one yard out with 40 seconds left in the half. He also contributed two catches for 18 yards. He will try to keep up the good work at New Orleans in Week 4.

  • Cowboys running back Joseph Randle had 18 carries for 51 yards and caught his lone target for 14 yards in Sunday's 20-10 win at Philadelphia. Randle had a long rush of just six yards, but he did run with a lot of determination and made positive gains on busted plays several times. Meanwhile, Darren McFadden also wasn't impressive on a per-play basis, rushing for just 31 yards on 10 carries. After two weeks, it appears as though Randle will lead the Cowboys' committee, but it's hard to get excited about anyone with the news that Tony Romo will miss 4-to-12 weeks due to a fractured clavicle. If you need to use Randle in Week 3, he'll face the Falcons at home.

  • The Cowboys finished with 22 carries in Sunday's season opener against the Giants. The trio of DeMarco Murray, Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar averaged 29.5 carries per game last season. Murray is now with the Eagles, but Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Monday the team would like to see more carries per game from Randle, Darren McFadden and Dunbar moving forward. "Our goal is still to get up there running the ball 25-30 times a game," Jones said, per The Dallas Morning News. "I think we ended up rushing about 22 times, so we'd like four or five more rushes on there, but this group is very productive." Randle led the charge Week 1 with 16 carries for 65 yards, while McFadden added six carries for 16 yards. "Joseph played well," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. "He had some good runs, some tough dirty runs where things weren't really clean, but he made a dirty, 3-4-5 yard run. When he had a little more space he made some plays."

  • The Cowboys played their first regular-season game Sunday against the Giants in the post-Demarco Murray era. While the run game had their moments, Dallas netted just 80 rushing yards and 3.5 yards per carry in the 27-26 win. After much speculation, Joseph Randle started at running back for Dallas. He had only 39 rushing yards on nine attempts and one catch for 6 yards by halftime, but he was a key factor in the second half. Randle would finish with 65 rushing yards on 16 attemps and three catches for 42 yards. Darren McFadden didn't get a lot of opportunities. He rushed for 16 yards on six carries and had one catch for 19 yards. Lance Dunbar, however, was a major factor in the passing game. He led Dallas with 70 receiving yards on eight catches. All in all, Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan seemed pleased with how the running backs played. "I thought when we ran the ball it was efficient," Linehan said, per "We'd like to pop a few long runs, but I didn't think that our running game was a concern at all. There were some things that were there. It was just a weird game." The Cowboys lowest rushing total in 2014 was 92 yards on 25 carries. "We got the dirty yards we needed to win the game," Randle said of Sunday's performance.

  • The Cowboys are expected to start Joseph Randle at running back Sunday night against the Giants, sources told ESPN. Although Randle might get the start, the Cowboys have been insistent on splitting carries between Randle, Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar. Still, Randle received the majority of first-team snaps when he and McFadden were healthy during the preseason.
